The _.now() method is used to get the timestamp of the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the Unix epoch (1 January 1970 00:00:00 UTC).

Syntax:

_.now()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter.

Return Value: This method returns the timestamp.

Example 1:

Javascript




// Defining Lodash variable
const _ = require('lodash');
  
// Getting the timestamp
console.log(_.now());


Output:

1599545119753

Example 2:

Javascript




// Defining Lodash variable
const _ = require('lodash');
  
// Creating print function to print
// timestamp after delay of 10ms 
function print(){ 
    setTimeout(() => { 
        console.log(
`Current timestamp is: ${_.now()}`) 
    }, 10) 
  
// Running this function 5 times
// using _.times() function. 
_.times(5, print) 
console.log("Type of timestamp is: "
    typeof(_.now())) 


Output:

Type of timestamp is:  number
Current timestamp is: 1599546710915
Current timestamp is: 1599546710916
Current timestamp is: 1599546710916
Current timestamp is: 1599546710916
Current timestamp is: 1599546710916

Note: This will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the lodash library to be installed.
